MUSICAL artists across the world have been notified that none of them are safe from an unplanned Sean Paul feature.
According to experts, one in three pieces of music across all genres now include a short, perfunctory rap from Sean Paul whether the original artist is aware of it or not.
Musicologist Emma Bradford said: “We haven’t seen an epidemic of Sean Paul like this since 2003.
“All musical artists are urged to protect themselves when recording and not to leave any exposed intros or middle eights if they don’t want to find themselves sharing royalties.
“If you’re vigilant, he can be easy to catch – he invariably announces his presence by repeating his name several times, and if caught in time his garbled bars can be removed from the song with no impact whatsoever.”
Grace Chatto of Clean Bandit said: “I remember when I heard Sean Paul featuring on a Saturdays song, I vowed I would never let that happen to me.
“But there he is, all over our number one hit Rockabye chanting a load of nonsense about a ‘daily struggle’. No-one is safe.”
